Fear and Courage tend to argue in my head all the time… It’s a never-ending battle where sometimes I meet them in the middle, give into those fears, or stand up in my Courage.
Here is an argument between them:
“I have had enough of you, Fear. I give her the best messages. What she needs to hear”, said Courage.
“Oh….SHUT UP! You are so snooty and get up on your high horse far too often!”, Fear said.
“No need to insult me. I know she likes it when I tell her – never give up“, said Courage. “She wishes you would shut it and put a lid on all your cheerleader rah rah sayings… My messages are much easier. She loves a, why try” , said Fear.
Courage took a breath and responded, “In the end she will listen to me over you.” “Don’t be so sure of yourself”, Fear said. “Why do you assume that anyway?”
“Because my positive voice is softly singing her a melodious chorus”, said Courage. “She prefers the calm sureness that only I can bring to her.”
“She yearns to hear a you can do it over you are so stupid or quit trying. You put her down”, exclaimed Courage. “What are you her night in shining armor? Go away! She wants nothing to do with you. All she knows is how to be stuck in me”, said Fear.
“Call me what you want, but I won’t give up on her,” said Courage. “She needs me and who wants to live life the easy way anyway? Life is not worth it, if it’s all peaches and ice cream.”
“Shut up”, said Fear. “If that’s all you got…. I think she’ll have no problem tuning you out”, said Courage.
